Tina Fey has some strong words for white, college-educated female Trump voters.
During Friday night’s star-studded Facebook live ACLU benefit telethon (say that ten times fast), Fey chatted with Donna Lieberman (New York Civil Liberties Union executive director) and Louise Melling (ACLU deputy legal director).
They talked about women’s issues and the importance of fighting for rights, even if it is not something that impacts our lives directly.
The conversation turned to the fact that 53% of white women voted for Trump, and Tina had something to say about this.
“A lot of this election was turned by white, college-educated women who now would maybe like to forget about this election and go back to watching HGTV…I would want to urge them to like, ‘You can’t look away’ because it doesn’t affect you this minute, but it’s going to affect you eventually.”
“I personally will make my own pledge as a college-educated white woman to not look away to not pretend that things are happening now won’t eventually affect me if we don’t put a stop to it.”
We agree and ask for people to really take it that step further.
Don’t just take action because a choice affects you, take action because it affects your community, country and world. Get mad, and displace that anger into positive action. If you’re feeling regretful or mad because you’re suddenly affected by a Trump administration decision, you’ve waited too long.
